The exhibition features amateur and professional artists

Network Arts committee member, Jayne Creer, said: “It is a pleasure to exhibit our work in this lovely gallery. Our group has contributed over 80 pieces of artwork, each piece on sale at affordable prices. The exhibition really is a perfect time to visit the gallery.”

Alongside seasoned artists several are taking part in a ‘Small Wonders’ for the first time.

Debut artist Anne Jarvis has entered two pieces of her stained glass creations.

She said: “This is my first exhibition, I never thought I would get such an opportunity. I much prefer people being able to see my work rather than look at online images.”

Eileen Daley took three buses from her home in the south of Northamptonshire to bring her artwork to the gallery.

She said: “It’s a joy to see my work on display. It means a lot.”

NHS worker Alison Meaker has only recently started painting to offset the stress of her job.

She said: “It is rewarding to know people are looking at your work and forming an opinion.”

The exhibition is on until May 21, from 10am to 3pm and admission is free. Refreshments are on sale in the vintage tearoom.
